Professional divers know that underwater, refraction rules out long ranges. Because of its axial collimator, the LED Lenser D14 diving flashlight attains an amazing strength of focus even at long ranges. Thanks to its unique cooling system, unlike many other diving lights, the D14 flashlight can also be operated on land. Its beam distance when out of water is 590 feet and it is suitable for dives down to 197 ft. / 7 bar. Special magnetic parts allow for switch activation without mechanical parts that could corrode over time.

        Comments about D14:

        We bought (2) of these lights for a trip to Mexico because of their reviews (and price) on another retailer's site. I did not expect too much from the light to be honest, but the bright yellow colour, easy operation, and generally favourable reviews made the decision for our purchase. The thought was we would try it out doing some of the swim through "caves" in the walls in Cozumel on our first few dives and then decide if we would need to rent real dive lights for our other light-required diving later in the trip.
        Even in daylight, these lights add to the quality of the dive. Generally we dive in the Pacific NW and they have been indispensable even in "good" visibility. If you're not familiar - it's cold water diving with a lot of fresh and salt interchange, and that translates into 25 feet (best I've seen yet). Before you poo-poo it, there are really amazing things to see, and this light helps a lot.
        The downside to this purchase, and it's not really the fault of the light but more the use case: It is too bright and focused for night time photography. Your eyes do a marvelous job of switching between high and low contrast environments, and because of the layout of the rods and cones in your eye, you can actually compartmentalize a bright image inside of a dark one. With cameras not so much. My wife and I mitigated this problem on our Mexico trip by taking a hairband and a white plastic grocery bag and then covering the end of the light to create a diffuser. This was perfect for photography, but horrible for navigation, so we had one covered and one not. It would be easy enough to remove should I need to use the light for navigation suddenly (but not easy to put back on underwater).
        You would be correct in thinking we should dive with (2) lights each. I know it's a stupid and unnecessary risk that we are taking. I'm planning on making custom diffusers for the pair we own and then buying (2) more of them as the navigation lights.
        So yeah...LED Lenser...you want to offer a tension fit diffuser we can pop on and off with 7mm gloves on? That would make this the best dive light I've ever used. That would be awesome, I would buy them. Hopefully with a lanyard loop so they don't get lost. Maybe in a couple of colours for land use as well, but primarily white is what I need.

                    This is my second dive flashlight. However, what I like in particular is the size. It is not too small and not too big. Just nice and as expected very powerful. Also the oval form is better than the usual round type.
